KLAAS MOLENAAR & ANTTI SAVOLAINEN | Galleria Art Kaarisilta
28 February - 25 March
Exhibition at Galleria Art Kaarisilta. Open Tue-Fri 11-18, Sat & Sun 12-16. Free admission.
In Klaas Molenaar’s mixed-media works, the difference between abstract and figurative loses its significance. Molenaar works from one edge of the paper to the other and writes lines of text as a description of his inner world. In his own words, his works are always “beautiful drawings”.
Klaas Molenaar (born 1966, Huizen, Netherlands) has been working at the Kunstcentrum Kijkør studio since 1990. Molenaar’s works are in several museum collections, including MADmusée (Liege, Belgium) and Kunnen Art Hall (Münster, Germany).
Antti Savolainen’s works are expressive and explorative beyond the surface. His art intertwines realism with the world of magic and fairytales. The exhibition presents Savolainen’s ceramic works made from stoneware, as well as meticulous sketches of sculptures.
Antti Savolainen graduated from Kaarisilta Art Center in 2013. Since graduation, Savolainen has been working at Kaarisilta’s art studio and has participated in joint exhibitions both in Finland and abroad.
